Enamelware Espresso Cup
MADE IN MEXICO CITY
Adorable espresso cup(s) made of durable enamelware featuring "La Calavera" (the skull) - a quintessential symbol in México representing Dia de los Muertos which honors the deceased with festivals and lively celebrations. This multi-day custom in México combines indigenous Aztec rituals with Spanish traditions.
Designed and handcrafted by a woman-owned studio in Mexico City, the inside of each cup depicts the phrase "Muero por un cafe", or "I am dying for a coffee". These playful cups perfectly embody the spirit of Dia de los Muertos: to celebrate the dead with beauty and humor.
